winter recipes on rotation

I'm a fan of word of mouth recipe recommendation, and was wondering, do you want to do a recipe swap? Because I cook everyday, I look for simple  but delicious dishes, and have quickly jotted down some of the recipes I use frequently in the middle of winter. I hope this will be of use. Bon apetit!

♥  Kale chips: wash and dry kale, cut into smaller pieces about 4 inches long, massage in olive oil, place on paper-lined baking sheet and cook in oven until crisp
♥  Perfect roasted potatoes they are cooked for five minutes, which means when they are roasted, they get a wonderful crispness to the edges. You will see that even non-potato eaters will ask for seconds
♥  Oven roasted beets (a stainless, faster method!)
♥  I love roasting all my vegetables: parsnips, carrots (which I cut into sticks, rub with olive oil and lightly salt); cauliflower (which works wonderfully with the sauce below). I often wrap some fish with fresh herbs and garlic in foil, and cook it alongside the veg, all on a paper-lined baking sheet, and take the fish out first
♥  Miso-glazed flank steak
♥  A Poppytalk sauce that works wonders with couscous and veg
♥  Polenta first stove cooked: while it is cooking, preheat oven and add a pan with enough olive oil to cover (as in perfect potato recipe). When polenta is done, add in at least half a cup of freshly grated Parmesan, salt a little pepper, and red pepper flakes if desired, add it to pan; it should sizzle on being added. Sprinkle more freshly grated Parmesan on top. Bake until top is golden
♥  Cleaned squash or any gourd-like squash, placed in dish with a little bit of water, and it's hollow part filled with a bit of cream or similar, salt, pepper, sage and topped with brie. This should be roast in the oven. Here is a similar recipe. And here is a recipe with the same ingredients that could be modified to be even quicker, but to result in a similar taste. (If you want the exact recipe, I will copy it out in the comments)

Such recipes should keep one warm and nourished until summer!
